Atherton receives Top Hat award

Carol Atherton, a member of St. Thomas More Parish in Omaha, is the winner of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul's 2012 Top Hat Award in recognition for her years of leadership and help with the Society's food pantry.

The award, given to the volunteer whose contributions have gone above and beyond the general opportunities for helping out, was presented during the Society's annual meeting in December.

As coordinator of the food pantry, Atherton, now retired, secured weekly food orders, scoured advertisements for low-cost pantry items, bargained with store managers for bulk rates on pantry staples, sorted and bagged groceries and worked with parish food drives.
